Things That Matter

reading list Apr 30, 2022

 

"Things That Matter is a book about living well.

It’s about overcoming the chatter of a world focused on all the wrong things. It’s about rethinking the common assumptions of today to find satisfaction and fulfillment tomorrow."

Below I've gathered my favorite quotes/excerpts from this book:

"...what man really fears  is no so much extinction, but extinction with insignificance."

-

"If you've been thinking that your past mistakes disqualify you from pursuing things that are meaningful or important to you, I want to flip your thinking there. It could be that those very circumstances qualify you to own a particular goal or good work. You can learn lessons that would be available to you in no other way. You can take your suffering and use it to ease someone else's suffering".

-

"The best, most direct pathway to lasting happiness and fulfillment is to look not only at your own interests but also at the interests of others. When we begin living our lives for the sake of others, our lives immediately take on greater value".

-

The desire for money begins to dominate our time, our energy, our values, and our relationships. Too often, it limits our potential to bring good into the world because we can never become greater than that which we most desire".

-

"I have come to realize that materialism holds people captive in many of the same ways communism does. The communism I grew up with sought to destroy our personal identities by force. Materialism does the same. But materialism destroys personal identity by choice".

-

"It's not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. [...] So it is: we are not given a short life but we make it short and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it...Life is long if you know how to use it."
